Day 11 June 24 Cape May to Brooklyn, NY

clear

Amazingly everything worked out. We went north on the Garden State Parkway and the GPS led us directly to the building in Brooklyn between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge. There was a parking lot almost beside the condo that for a mere $75 let us park for 24 hours. It was surrounded with a high chain link fence and topped with razor wire. On one side was the high wall beside the approach to the Brooklyn Bridge. Attendants were on duty for 24 hours.

Cousin Hugh's condo is in a restored factory with high ceilings and lots of windows. The building has been restored with first class quality materials. As Hugh had to work in his advertising business we walked around nearby Brooklyn Heights, a high class very old neighborhood. Then we walked on a path to the first tower of the Brooklyn Bridge. This bridge was built just after the Civil War and is still very much in use. Hundreds of people were walking, running, and riding over the bridge. Hugh not only purchased his condo but also a roof garden on the top of the building above the penthouse floor. See the photo for the spectacular view from the roof garden. The view ranges from the Statue of Liberty to the Manhattan Bridge. We drank wine while the sun went down and then went to a nearby Tapas restaurant for dinner.
